Create your own mail art!

Droitwich Arts Network invite children and adults of Droitwich Spa to participate in the Mail Art project. The table with coloured pencils, markers and paper cards is available in the Library in Victoria Square and everybody is invited to take a part. This is the part of ongoing Mail Art project that started during the Salt Fest and will continue until the end of October with the final exhibition that will be held in the Library.

The exhibition will show the mail art sent to us from a twin town Voiron in France, as well as from mail artists from all around the globe (Germany, Finland, Spain, Brasil, Italy, Serbia…) and all those who create their own art postcards in the Library until the end of September.

Mail Art Exhibition

mail art poster 1Droitwich Spa Salt Fest started in 2006 to celebrate the town’s unique salt heritage. Since then the event has grown considerably taking place across the whole town centre and attracting thousands of visitors.

Droitwich Arts Network (DAN) invites member artists to participate in the Mail Art Exhibition that will be part of 2015  Salt Festival programme (12 – 13 September). Similarly, Les Amis des Arts de Voiron invites DAN members to respond in like manner. The aim of the project is to connect artists from Droitwich Spa with fellow artists from twin town. Feel free to introduce yourself through your artistic expression. We are looking forward to seeing your works.

“Mail art (also known as Postal art and Correspondence art) is a populist artistic movement centered on sending small scale works through the postal service. It initially developed out of the Fluxus movement in the 1950s and 60s, though it has since developed into a global movement that continues to the present.” (Wikipedia)
